Ravens get revenge in AFC title rematch

FOXBOROUGH, Massachusetts - The Baltimore Ravens won the AFC title rematch against the New England Patriots, using a commanding second-half display to pull away for a 28-13 triumph on Sunday that booked a Super Bowl showdown against the San Francisco 49ers.

Baltimore outscored the Pats 21-0 after halftime as coach John Harbaugh gave Joe Flacco the green light to throw more against a depleted Patriots’ secondary to complement the hard running by Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce.

Flacco, who threw for 81 yards on 6-of-12 passing in the first half, finished the game completing 21-of-36 for 240 yards and three second-half touchdowns, two to Anquan Boldin.

Along with some big stops by the Baltimore defense that halted New England drives into their territory, that added up to sweet revenge for last year’s 23-20 loss to New England in the corresponding game in what was the first repeat clash between the same teams in successive AFC championships for 25 years.
